In 2002, Brian David Mitchell abducts 14-year-old Elizabeth Smart from her Salt Lake City home. Held captive by Mitchell and his accomplice, Smart must endure months of brutality while trying to figure out a way to escape.

Watching this reenactment movie was totally heart wrenching especially since Elizabeth was only 14 years old when she was kidnapped. Being raped, bullied, starved made it worst but she survived the harrowing ordeal and when she was finally discovered, it was definitely a breath of relief! She's mentally strong, able to slowly plan and decide how to get along so that she could stay alive which is no easy feat. I truly applaud her for being so brave to stand her ground, moving forward and helping others in need. Also producing and narrating this movie, she's so strong being able to look back on it! Creating more awareness definitely helps especially since there are more unsound-minded people nowadays. I think I would not have been as brave and strong as her and would have killed myself instead of slaving for that animal!
